The thing above is the coloured up version of a cartoon I did of my niece Therese reachin into the cookie jar, I started colouring it when I was waiting for the script for the next episode, finished it off there this evenin when I finished thumbnailing. I wanted to practice hair a bit, still somethin' 'chewbacca-like' about it, but I'm gettin a bit better, just have to keep pluggin away on the practice. Anyway, it was fun. I started with block shapes in illustrator and added shadows and texture in ps. Still need illustrator for pieces like this, kind of keeping it in between the lines in old kid colouring terms, and the pen tool is more 'tom' friendly in illustrator than the same tool in ps.
